Ivanka Trump is taking wardrobe cues from Meghan Markle.

Stepping out in Ethiopia on Sunday and Monday, Trump sported two shoe styles that have received the Duchess of Sussex’ seal of approval.

Yesterday, the first daughter looked chic in a pulled-together outfit as she met with Ethiopian President Sahle-Work Zewde at the Presidential Palace in Addis Ababa. Trump wore a floral Emilia Wickstead shirt dress that costs $1,655. The bold dress featured ruffled bell sleeves and a full skirt.

For footwear, the senior White House adviser selected all-white Manolo Blahnik BB pumps — a go-to style for Markle as well as for first lady Melania Trump. The Italian-made shoes feature a slim stiletto heel and a leather upper; they retail for $665.

The 37-year-old went with a more dressed-down — and more affordable — ensemble on day 1 of her Ethiopia trip as she sipped tea with USAid administrator Mark Green and women from the Ethiopian Women in Coffee Association.

She stepped out in a pale blue J.Crew midi dress with a tie-waist and three-quarter sleeve. The still-available item costs just $138.

The ex-shoe designer also went with more casual shoes, opting for Rothy’s flats. The comfy, casual style is a Markle favorite; the latter broke out the sleek style on her Australia trip in October.  Trump selected the brand’s $145 pointed toe Maritime flat in navy.

Trump’s time in Ethiopia has come to an end. While there, she helped launch 2X Africa, a Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative meant to help close the credit gap for African female entrepreneurs.
